Indigenous peoples and local communities live in more than half of the world´s land area yet they legally own less than 10% of their territories. Securing their land and forest rights enables them to have the cultural and economic independence to thrive and continue to protect systems vital to our global climate, fresh water, and food security. The International Land and Forest Tenure Facility (Tenure Facility) offers grants and technical expertise at the speed and scale required to secure tenure and sustainably manage millions of hectares at risk today. The Tenure Facility works directly with the Indigenous Peoples and local communities and their allies’ ensuring laws on community rights are translated into rights recognition on the ground. It supports them to achieve formal legal recognition of their land and forest rights on maps, in laws, and in the plans and operations of governments and private investors. It works strategically with local, national, and international stakeholders to foster community-level partnership and joint action with governments and the private sector.
The International Land and Forest Tenure Facility is an organization based in Stockholm, Sweden.
The Tenure Facility has secured multi-year funding and the Secretariat, with around 25 staff, is therefore looking forward to adding a Development Officer.
